I am from Australia and in june of this year I visited a small town in Montana with a group of students from my school. Me and some of my mates were going to a party just out of town. We had just got some beer and were sitting in the back of my mate B's truck, waiting for people to start arriving for the party. Id already consumed 2 bottles of beer when I took my first hit.

My mate J loaded the bowl of his hash pipe, and gave it to me. He lit it and I breathed in the smoke for about 10 seconds (he told me to stop), then held my breath for about 30 seconds. I asked him what it would feel like when it began to effect me, but he kept saying 'You'll know it when it hits you'. B also took a hit. After about 5 minutes I still didn't feel anything, I drank another bottle of beer. B said he could feel it, and he had another hit I think.

I told J I couldn't feel anything yet so he gave me another hit. Once again I completely filled my lungs with smoke and held my breath for about 30 seconds. By this time the party had got going and there were lots of people around. I had some rum from a bottle, roughly 2 shots worth. I started to feel really drunk, even though I normally wouldn't feel much at all after drinking that much. I assumed it must be sum weird biochemical thing that was making me get drunk more easily, maybe something to do with the chewing tobacco I had that afternoon.

I told J I still couldn't feel anything and we went away into some trees and I took another hit. By this point I was having difficulty walking and I was stumbling a bit as it was now quite dark, about 10:00. I had another hit for good measure then went back to the party. My throat was hurting really bad from the smoke, I don't even smoke cigarettes. I got another beer and started drinking it slowly. There were people everywhere, and instead of mixing with them and talking, I felt like being by myself to enjoy the experience (I'd decided that I was indeed stoned at this point). I stared off into the darkness. I could see the silhouette of trees against the sky. There were clouds in the sky lit by moonlight. I began to read words out of the tree/sky outline. I could make out the bottom of the letters in the trees, and the rest was in the sky. I laughed at something funny I read. I saw the word 'don't' repeated many times and took it to mean 'don't cheat on your girlfriend'. Some of my mates came over to me and asked me what I was seeing. It annoyed me how they treated me like a child just because I was fucked up.

I also get annoyed when people treat me like a child when I'm drunk. They gave me more rum, straight from the bottle. They told me to come and join the party, so I walked back with them. They took photos of me which blinded me and annoyed me. I started talking to random people that I'd never met before. I told one guy my ideas about alcohol and weed: 'Alcohol brings to closer to people, and Weed takes you away from people'. I'm not sure if I was right or not. Some guy offered me a pill 'Legal speed' he said it was, and in my drunken stoned stupid state, I took it. My tongue started to feel really heavy and slow. It would push on the bottom of my mouth and I couldn't do anything about it. The air felt like it was as thick as water for about 2 minutes. I realized that my throat didn't hurt any more. Up until this point I had been slightly scared of what was going to happen to me, I felt out of control. When my throat no longer hurt, I began to enjoy myself. I walked away from the party several times to stare at the trees. I was freezing cold but I didn't care. I could hear people talking about me, looking for me, but I didn't move. I heard a truck start and got scared of being run over, so I walked back to the party. I heard about 5 people say 'there he is' when they saw me, It made me laugh because I knew where I was all the time. That night when my mate that I was staying with took me home at about 2:00, I had a long conversation with him about how nice dogs are and about him coming to visit me in Australia.

The next morning when I woke up, It was the day I was going back to Australia. I still felt fucked up. I didn't know if I was still stoned or if it was some kind of hangover or something. Somehow i packed up all my shit and got on the bus to go to the airport in billings. We stopped to do some shopping in billings. Inside the mall I got scared because of all the people, even though it wasn't very crowded at all. I felt I couldn't concentrate at all, and made a huge effort to remember where I was and where I was going. I bought some stuff for my girlfriend and had a bit of trouble finding the money in my wallet. I was saying fuck and shit because I couldn't do it, and I would normally never swear in that situation. I bought some shit for myself. I was extremely glad to have my mates to look after me, even though they were laughing at me when I told them I was still stoned or that I was scared. After shopping we went through the airport and got on the plane. I had been dreading all morning having to get my passport out at the airport, and i was afraid the airport staff would realize I was fucked up and have me arrested or something, especially as i had a half bottle of rum in my bag and I'm only 16. But it wasn't that hard in the end, and it all went smoothly. By the time we arrived in San Francisco, I felt pretty good, although I still felt a little fucked up. I continued to feel the effects for about a week, not too serious though. I definitely enjoyed the experience, and I look forward to trying marijuana again next school break (id never do it on a weekend because of the after effects i experienced), and next time I wont have alcohol or any other drugs with it so I can have a pure Cannabis experience.
